LEGO Slave I (75060)

lego-slave-1-75060-tn

Available January 1, 2015 from LEGO.com is the Lego Ultimate Collectors Series Slave I, kit #75060. At 1,996 pieces it's the biggest Slave I to date and certainly looks to maintain the quality of appearance standards of the UCS line. It's also Lego's latest attempt at a Star Wars kit that is to scale (or close to scale) to their minifigs. Speaking of minifigs, this kit includes a new Boba Fett ESB paint/print scheme (for the variant hunters), Han Solo both in and out of carbonite, as well as a Stormtrooper and Bespin Guard. Priced at $199.99 this kit may be a bit pricey for the casual collectors, but unlike some other UCS models this one looks like it rates high on the playability scale.

Pros:

  • Who doesn't love Legos?
  • Larger kit size create a more streamlined and less blocky look more closely matching the look of the original ILM model

Cons:

  • Stickers. This kit has a lot of stickers.
  • Boba is still sporting a Jango Fett Geonosis model jet pack.

My take:

I'm getting at least one. The Lego UCS line appreciates in value dramatically after a run ends so for those of us that sometimes sell off collection pieces to fund new ones these are a good investment. Plus it's Slave-1, so come on! I'm looking forward to building it and displaying it "in pursuit" of my 10179 Millennium Falcon.
